What boots

I need new boots and have been wearing Gaerne boots for the last 5 years. They've done well and I think I like the look of the SG10 that they sell now. Any comments on them or any other boots?

Cheers

Been wearing the same pair of Tech 8's for the last 8 years they have held up well.

Been looking to replace them with either the Tech 8's or with the Crossfires. There is quite a following of people who rave about the cross fires.

The Sidi CrossFire SRS have got my attention. They ain't cheap (~$400), but I love the fact that the boot is made of replacable components.

The SG10 get alot of good reviews as well, and better price point.

Let us know what you get and how they work out. happy hunting

i've been trying the fox offroad trackers, which so far after one season are holding up well. they have a proper gripped sole like a work boot which means you can actually walk around/drag your bike out of the slippy stuff with out ending up on your ass. cheap too.

tech 10's are my choice , very comfortable and give excellent support . they take 20 + hours
to break in and are rock hard out of the box .

I have some Sidi boots, (can't remember the model but the have the hinged ankle) whilst comfortable from the off these have not lasted as I'd hoped. I've had mine just over a year and I have to duct tape the pastic parts together, I have lost buckles and had to drill out snapped bolts. I will not be replacing them with another pair of Sidi's. I would get something more leather based as my alpinestars trials boots are maybe 10years old and are still good. You can treat them with leather food and clean every now and again and they last.
I've been looking at enduro boots and think I will get some Tech 3's with the enduro sole as the are not to expensive should last well and have a grippy sole.
You can talk about protection all day but I feel the best protecting boots are the one's you feel comfortable in as them allow you to ride out of trouble!

I have recently purchased the Tech 7s , they seemed to fit quite well ,as I have a broad foot, cheap ,comfortable, have replacable section on the soles and are pretty water tight. Dry feet , you cant go wrong.!!

Im very happy since I went with the Tech 3s. I wear them once a week for 2 years now and they look and work great even for being the cheaper model. Got em for around 150. Maybe I'll try the tech 7 or 8s next time. The money is probably well spent.

i went from shift combat to alpine star tech 3. as far as i am concerned i'm going to stick with alpine star as long as they keep making them. there is no comparison when it comes comfort for my feet. You can even walk in them fairly easily. plus the price is right on the tech 3. look online at ironpony.com. can't beat the price.

My old Tech 8s have done about 35,000 km of bush work. Can't remember how many insteps replaced, which is a great feature, and 2 complete resoles and a set of booties. Expensive up front, but economical over time. New Tech 8s for me, although they do seem to be a completely different boot, just still got the same name and basic features, ie booties and replaceable insteps and lighter.

Does anyone out there have a need for RHS insteps? They are only available in pairs and I seem to go through about 3 LHS ones to each RHS, hence I have a few spare, will swap for LHS.
